Tennessee Announces New Ticket Pricing For 2022-2023 Season
Tuesday, October 26, 2021
Following last month's announcement outlining the Tennessee Fund's new priority seating model, Tennessee Athletics on Tuesday announced its basketball season-ticket pricing for the 2022-23 season. Pricing for seasons beyond that is subject to change based on future arena enhancements currently under evaluation.
Under the new pricing model, fans will select from among 11 price zones—which include two existing premium zones—throughout Thompson-Boling Arena, with most zones carrying a specific donation* amount required to purchase season tickets.
Mirroring the new Tennessee football pricing plan, certain areas of Thompson-Boling Arena have been designated as no-donation/family sections for Vols and/or Lady Vols fans seeking an alternative to seats carrying a gift requirement.
"As we did for Tennessee football, we made a concerted effort to construct a more fair and equitable basketball ticket-pricing structure for all fans," Tennessee Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White said. "The comprehensive changes we've implemented in our pricing plan and our multi-sport priority seating model should increase access for fans who have long been interested in upgrading their Tennessee basketball gameday experience but have had very limited options.
"It's important to be upfront about the fact that this pricing is only for the 2022-23 season. We're currently evaluating various arena renovation options, exploring amenity additions—particularly a lower-level club—and looking into other creative projects aimed at enhancing the gameday experience for everyone in the arena.
"Part of that exploratory process includes gathering fan feedback through surveys and focus groups. That input is very important. I appreciate our fans' participation and their incredible excitement about both of our basketball programs."
Future enhancements to Thompson-Boling Arena would be funded primarily through the Tennessee Athletics Department's ongoing My All Campaign.
This new basketball pricing plan places Tennessee's season-ticket costs and associated donations more in line with those of its peers. The plan also introduces an adjusted footprint for student seating sections for men's games only. Beginning in 2022-23, the Rocky Top Rowdies' impact will be felt behind both baskets for men's games, in addition to overflow student seating in the arena's southwest end.
Tennessee Athletics staff members are available to discuss these changes over the phone (865-656-1200) or via the live chat function on TennesseeFund.org during business hours.
